An idea; a wish; a dream of Pakistan’s youth realizing their untapped potential; this was the vision with which Young Leaders Conference (YLC) came into existence 18 years ago. What started as a modest conference back in 2002, has now transformed itself into a belief system. The idea of YLC was conceived to educate and engage the youth creating a judgement free-space where ideas would flow and identities form.
We all are living our lives our own ways, at our own paces. But the question is: are we living our lives to the maximum? It’s time, We Amplify!
What stops us from amplifying the possibilities we create for ourselves? What hinders our boundless imagination and creativity? Who creates limits? What defines them?
Overcoming mental barriers liberates us to reach new horizons. For this to actually happen, we need to free ourselves from the inner shackles that hold us back. It’s time to stop hiding behind excuses.
The journey of self-discovery starts by taking a deep dive within. We need to recognize our true potential and work our way towards leading a meaningful life.
It’s time we start looking at our lives in a completely different way. Step out of the box – it is not sealed!

It is always a pleasure to come and attend YLC. At YLC, you not only get to meet the future of Pakistan but also get the opportunity to share and learn a lot of things. I think platforms like YLC are very essential and crucial for our next generation, for their learning and the best thing about this platform is the fact that they promote diversity by inviting people from different cultures, and from all walks of life.

YLC-I champ, I had no idea how it would feel until July 01, 2005. There was the moment to enjoy the fruit of months of effort. Watching 236 lives changing by every passing second was a dream come true! For me YLC-I was an experience far beyond my expectations. It has personally made me believe that nothing on this earth is impossible, you just need the will to do it! The whole experience taught me how to learn from the minutest things on this earth. My faith in my own generation has increased at least 50 times.
My trip to Pakistan was spectacular, and most memorable indeed. In fact on my way back to the airport, I was missing YLC, my new friends who became very close to me, those colorful t-shirts, and this literally made me weep. I need to thank you and the entire SoL team for providing me the best hospitality and creating a home-like atmosphere.
Some days back a friend of mine sent me a text message and asked me about how was my experience of YLC. I didn’t reply her till yesterday because I wasn’t sure if I could put in words what I have got from YLC. Then I tried and my answer to her was: “YLC was full of learning, fun and friends!” And now I feel each of these three words inhibit thousands of treasures. YLC gave me the ability to “Be Myself” with holding my head high. It gave me the courage to Speak Up for whatever is on my mind and in my heart, it gave me the courage to do things my way and succeed. It opened my eyes to the abilities that lie in me for bringing success to my country and showed me the opportunities that lie for me in my precious country.
It's really impossible to explain what YLC has given me. Let's conclude it precisely as YLC made me a better human, made me realize my capabilities, allowed me to discover the unknown potentials & at the same time made me aware of my social duties. YLC made me elevate my life to meaningful platform. The teachings of YLC not only focused on the betterment of those 350 participants, but it made efforts to spread the word through multiplier effect.

Leadership is one of our core values, and hence it is natural that we take it as our responsibility to guide the youth in developing intellectual curiosity and becoming resilient leaders.
